A woman and a Rochester firefighter were rescued late Thursday night when flames trapped them on the second floor of a house on Aberdeen Street.
The fire was reported at 387 Aberdeen St., on the city’s west side, shortly before 10 p.m.
Lt. Edward Kuppinger of the Rochester Fire Department said that after it was determined a person was trapped on the second floor of the house, a firefighter went inside to attempt a rescue. However, flames blew up a stairwell, trapping the two.
A second firefighting crew then entered the 2 1/2 story wood framed house and were able to rescue both the woman and firefighter, Kuppinger said.
